    For Aussie TF101 owners: the latest in ICS

    If you're in Australia - like me - and you are hanging out for ICS for your TF101 - like me - here is the response I received from Ausus Oz overnight:

    "Hi Rob, a rough ETA will be during March, however I wasn't given an exact release date yet, it's still being worked on at this stage, but will let you know when I have an update. Thanks!"

    The good news is they are now answering questions on their FB site so we Aussies don't have to use the US site any more.

    Still saying Mid-Febuary for here in the UK. This was posted 7 hrs ago (10:30AM GMT 13/02/2012):

    Morning all. Hope everyone had a good weekend? To update you on the ... update situations.
    The TF101 ICS update is still expected in February - exact date is not available to us at the moment. As always, when we have a specific date we will let you know.
    As for the TF201 FOTA update, we expected that at the end of last week but due to a couple of issues this has had to be pushed back. We apologise for any inconvenience and particularly getting your hopes up on Friday. A rescheduled release date will be announced shortly.

    eri, i bought my device in Japan too...but it's now a US_epad-8.6.5.21 device as I changed the SKU. I'm fairly sure I can get the OTA whenEVER it gets pushed out. If not I can download it from the Asus site and do it manually

    It's come out for the Xoom, and is starting to come out for some of the other tablets, like one of the Acer ones. There's no reason to think ASUS won't follow through.

    You have to keep in mind, there are a lot more TF101's on the market than those others....and, there are many more TF101's on the market than there are Transformer Primes. And if you look at those forums, they had a number of issues with the Primes when they were upgraded.

    I suspect they saw that, realized "wait, we have 20x as many TF101's in use than we have Primes, what if we have similar upgrade issues here?", and decided to work on it longer, to try and avoid a major PR issue with millions of TF101 users running into problems with the upgrade.

    In fact, if you read the Xoom forums, even some of *them* are having problems as well, as a result of the upgrade. So obviously, it's not a completely smooth process. I'd rather they take their time and get it right, rather than dealing with RMA'ing my tablet.

    They've given us no reason to believe they'll change their mind.
